It’s been 14 years since Boy Meets World when off the air, but Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel are back to reprise their roles on a brand new Disney Channel series.
Set in New York City, Girl Meets World picks up more than 10 years after Boy Meets World left off. The former adolescent flames are now married and raising two children, 7th-grade daughter Riley (Rowan Blanchard) and son Auggie (August Maturo). The story is centered around Riley, the title character.
“Girl Meets World is a new show for a new generation that will be rooted in the same kind of honest, comedic storytelling about coming of age and the importance of family and friendship that made Boy Meets World so popular,” says creator Michael Jacobs.
Disney Channel just released a photo from an upcoming episode of Girl Meets World, and it appears that Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) and their kids will be joined for dinner by some Boy Meets World faves: William Russ, Betsy Randle, and…Rider Strong! A rep for the show confirmed to EW it’s for a holiday episode.
Russ and Randle played Cory’s parents on the original series; Strong, of course, portrayed Cory’s BFF Shawn. This is the first confirmation fans have gotten that any of them will return on the new show.
Fishel also tweeted the above photo, adding the message: “Happy to have these familiar faces on set with us this week!”
